Bacolod City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz yesterday said that they are prepared for the Annual General Inspection/Operation Readiness Security Inspection Test and Evaluation to be conducted next week.
However, de la Paz said that there are a lot of things they need to improve on to get a high grade from the evaluators.
De la Paz has inspected the ten police stations in Bacolod and other police units to ensure that they are prepared for the upcoming ORSITE and he has emphasized the correct wearing of uniform to the policemen.
During the inspections, De la Paz said, he learned that there are police stations with no libraries while others have libraries but with insufficient references.
Having a library with books and references pertaining to law enforcement is one of the requirements of the evaluators of AGI-ORSITE so policemen will be reminded of the standard operating procedures, De la Paz said.
Aside from that, there are police stations with dilapidated rest rooms and detention cells which could also pull down the score of BCPO during the ORSITE, De la Paz also said.
BCPO received a “poor” rating during the AGI-ORSITE on the fourth quarter of 2010 but De la Paz assured that this will not happen this time.*APN
